Dishin & Swishin 5/22/13 Podcast: A roundtable preview of the 2013 WNBA season part one, the Western Conference
Friday the WNBA season tips off, so it is time to unveil the 2013 WNBA preview edition of the Dishin & Swishin Roundtable!
This year the roundtable was so good and loaded with information from our esteemed panelists, we have to divide it into two parts. Today you will get to hear the preview of the Western Conference. Tomorrow you will get to hear the preview of the Eastern Conference and the predictions for the season from our panelists.
As always the roundtable is hosted by Dishin & Swishin host David Siegel. The panel members joining David are:
- Mechelle Voepel, ESPN journalist
- Debbie Antonelli, television analyst who covers the Indiana Fever and a great deal of NCAA action
- Christy Winters-Scott, television analyst who covers the Washington Mystics and NCAA games
- Cindy Brunson makes her Dishin & Swishin debut, Fox Sports Arizona, former studio host of the WNBA for ESPN and SportsCenter anchor
How will the West be won? The roundtable will discuss each team in detail. Topics include arrivals and departures, rookies and veterans, and injuries and health. Who will improve, who will slide back? Who will contend for the playoffs and who will contend for the lottery.
To help you find your favorites, for the podcast from today and part two tomorrow, we will give you a guide as to where they are approximately located in the podcast (minutes:seconds). Obviously the best way to enjoy the flow of the roundtable is to listen in its entirety, but we understand sometimes that is not possible.
- Introduction and Phoenix Mercury preview – :00
- Minnesota Lynx preview – 8:07
- Los Angeles Sparks preview – 14:50

One small disclaimer, the roundtable was pre-recorded, so you might hear references to recently waived players (i.e. Jacki Gemelos, Chukcy Jeffery) and roster moves that happened before the recording.
Remember, tomorrow we will have part two, the Eastern Conference and the fearless panel predictions! Enjoy the podcast!
